I've decided to dedicate Wednesdays in November to word count! I'll post my updated word count, and you all do the same! We can cheer each other on. I won't get up to 50k though, because I don't need that much to finish my WIP. And if I do, my crit partners have my permission to beat me over the head with my future novel, because it would be WAY too long (only if they appear in a DeLorean).
I'm at 1431 words (80,988 total for my WIP).
(So I didn't write any yesterday, but I can't help it if I was glued to Anderson Cooper's lovely white hair all night)
Also, please consider donating to NaNo if you are participating- I am going to do that today. They run on donations only, so anything you can spare will help NaNo be even better in years to come.
Here is a great anti-NaNo pep talk from Maggie Stiefvater. She makes some really great points, and even though I feel like I could agree, I think NaNo is fun and brings writers together. I think it will help push me to sit down and write, rather than watch 5 episodes of House Hunters back-to-back.
So what's your word count? Even if you aren't doing NaNo, what's your word count on your current WIP?
